    Hello Jack

    Welcome to the board, a i hope your having a nice day.
    Checking www.cwgc.org for each name and then googling for name and serial number gives a lot of hit for P/O Webb.

    Primary one would be:
    http://www.aircrewremembered.com/raf1941/webb2.html

    Im in a car posting from smartphone, but will check the other name in similar fashion.

    I hope this helps.
